Tried yesterday to upload/publish a small ebook on Kindle. I've previously published 3 ebooks on Kindle without much hassle. This time the category selecting function didn't seem to work. I clicked on the "categories" link on the publishing page and landed on the selecting box. I clicked "non-fiction" but nothing happened, all that appeared apart from a lot of blank lines next to the boxes were a few unsuitable options such as "mathematics" "law" "history" etc. I tried clicking on the "all" button but nothing happened, no categories appeared so couldn't select any appropriate ones.
Secondly this is a very short ebook and I want to offer it free. I've seen other Kindle ebooks being offered free, but when on the pricing page I couldn't find any option anywhere for making it free, just the two 35% and 70% options. Could someone please help me out with these two problems/questions. Thanks.
I used the Contact link to send a question on the form but haven't had a reply yet. I think I'm more likely to get answers here.
I tried to upload a book on Saturday, but the category selection function was not working and there was a new (to me) cover requirement. On Sunday, I was able to select categories. However, I still can't upload my book because it is caught in the file conversion process. I think Kindle added new items to the uploading process and is working on new categories, etc. I will continue to try uploading my new book and I will hope that these bugs get worked out.
